The Linguistics Department offers the Ph.D., M.A. (both thesis and non-thesis), B.A., and two undergraduate minors (the Linguistics minor and the TESL minor). A TESL certificate is offered at the undergraduate level, and a SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching) certificate at the graduate level. We currently have almost 30 faculty (combining budgeted and affiliated personnel), well over 100 undergraduate majors, and approximately 40 graduate students.
